Sirrug, a Western Dragon

Dracoforms, also known as Dragons are the various forms of large saurian creatures of tremendous intellect and magical power. What little we know of these great mythical beasts comes from the great dragon Dunkelzahn, whose famous 12-hour interview on January 27th, 2012 answered most of the world’s questions about dragons, the Awakening and magic in general. Dunkelzahn, however, was an enigma among dragons. Whereas most dragons are solitary creatures, more apt to see people and companies as ways to increase their wealth and/or power, the Big D was always in the public spotlight and led metahumanity through the dark years when magic first returned. Most dragons can take on a human form in order to fit into modern society.

Great Dragons[]

Great Dragons are larger, stronger, more intelligent, and more magically powerful than their normal dracoform counterparts. They are capable of transforming into metahuman form at will and the ability to twist fate itself (in game terms they're able to counteract edge). It is currently unknown if all dragons will become great dragons as a natural part of their life cycle, but according to the few details known from when Masaru became a great dragon, there is a noticeable physical change to the dragon after the process occurs. The life cycle of dracoforms does seem to require great dragons, as great dragons are needed to raise dragon eggs. It does not matter who gave birth to the eggs, as for if the eggs stay under the care of a great dragon, the whelps that hatch will be the type of the great dragon. This is why the Sea Dragon worked for years to get her eggs back from Rhonabwy, as she did not want them to become western dragons.
